GBUS 505 - Intro to International Busines
This course provides an overview of the major principles, theories and issues regarding the role of contemporary international business within an interdependent world political economy, while developing students' sense of leadership and ethical responsibility.  The course examines entrepreneurship, cross-national investment and trading patterns, which raise questions of corporate strategy, identity, impact, government policies, politics, ethics, media, and distribution of benefits.  The inter¬relationships between international business, political sovereignty and control, socio-cultural characteristics and ethical considerations are examined in both developed and developing countries.  Specific case-study material covers a range of corporate manufacturing, advanced technology, and natural resource activities.  These will be combined with more general theoretical discussion to place course topics within a practical and realistic framework.
